2nd MenEngage Global Symposium 2014

Men and Boys for Gender Justice

Delhi, November 10-13, 2014

On behalf of organizers of this symposium, Abhijit Das, director of the Centre for Health and Social Justice (CHSJ), India invites organizations to participate in this global symposium. CHSJ is a registered Indian Non Profit (Non Governmental Organization) and has been working with ‘MenEngage’ since 2006 to explore their role in social power structures, with a special focus on domestic violence and gender discriminatory social practices. CHSJ along with MenEngage, a global alliance of organizations working with men and boys for gender equality is organizing the Second Global Symposium on working with Men and Boys in Delhi in November 2014.

This Symposium is a follow up to the First Global Symposium held in Rio de Janerio in 2009. It will bring together researchers and practitioners, advocates and activists, government representatives and the donor community to share experiences, evidence and insights and seek directions on how men and boys can creatively contribute to gender equality, the new development paradigm beyond the Millennium Development Goals framework, and towards the broader vision of social justice. The symposium has already generated interest among a large number of international organizations and donors including United Nations Population Fund, UNWomen, Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, and UK’s Department for International Development. This Symposium will bring together a “minimum critical mass” among both practitioners, researchers and funding agencies globally to foster a new approach to social transformation.

Organizations are invited to join in this occasion and enrich the discussions and deliberations through their participation. The different tracks of the Symposium have been designed with an inter-sectoral focus and contributions which can be conceptual, reflective, research based, or share practice in the field are welcome. Interested parties are invited to submit abstracts as well as book space for satellite sessions or exhibition booths to showcase their work around the different themes.

A brochure of the symposium is attached for your reference and we would request you to visit the symposium website at http://menengagedilli2014.net/ for further details.
